I DON’T LIKE EARTHQUAKES WE’VE BEEN HAVING WAY TOO MANY LATELY AND IT’S FREAKING MY OUT.

plus my roleplay partners keep disconnecting when i say, ‘One sec there was an earthquake’ and it’s kind of irritating cause i’m not lying there was an actual earthquake that stuff happens you know

I could never sleep the night and the night after large earthquakes
I’m really kind of scared of an aftershock. Or maybe it was a foreshock. Just
Earthquakes are my biggest fear and its such a dumb one because it’s unavoidable? But they make me so scared and the fear of them keeps me up sometimes hhh

Ugh

I have earthquakes blacklisted becuase I have really bad seismophobia and  even the thought of one makes me have a really bad panic attack but tumblr savior isn’t working anymore so I don’t know what to dooooooo. 

Earthquake - Survived!

And this honestly is big for me even though nothing in my house broke.

-

But I am legitimately seismophobic.

I was outside painting our school’s senior rock when we felt the tremor.

It lasted 20 seconds.

When it ended I ran around in a little circle, shouting a bit.

Then I crouched down into a fetal position.

-

Earthquakes are my biggest fear.

(And there is literally no gif to express me terror. We’re talking horrified sobbing.)

Here's another fun fact:

Back in October of 2007, I developed seismophobia, the fear of earthquakes. Yeah, yeah, it sounds stupid, or funny, but I cannot, I repeat, cannot deal with earthquakes the way some people do.

October 30th, 2007, 8:00 pm, I experienced my first 4.5 magnitude earthquake. It literally scared me to the point where I almost lost my mind. After that night, I barely slept for three fucking months, I stayed up, readying myself just in case another earthquake hit. When I did sleep, I slept in my parents room, all three of us squished in their queen size bed. I was a chubby middle schooler back then.
I would jump up whenever someone would bump into me or my desk; or sometimes even break out in a sweat if walked into a crowd of people. I hated going into tight crowed spaces, and didn’t like being stuck inside. I got nervous whenever my dog would bark or cry, and was constantly alert if people started yelling.
I had developed post traumatic stress disorder from an earthquake. Also, general anxiety disorder.
I joke about many things, but having seismophobia is not a joke, among other topics.

We recently had a earthquake where I lived, and it’s 3:45 am. I can’t sleep, I cant bring my raised heart rate down. I can’t sleep, I’m scared I might be having another panic attack, because of the earthquake.
